Friday Feast

What is your middle name? Would you change any of your names if you could? If so, what would you like to be called?
My middle name is Rene (with a squiggle above the last e). I would love to change my name--both middle and first. I have never liked Kimberly--(1/2 the girls born in the '60s were named that!) and I recently discovered that the spelling of Rene my parents chose is the French male version--great....
I would have like to be called Isabelle or Sophie or even something from one of my Grandmas. One was Gladys Aeline (I like Aeline) and the other is Hattie Christine. My Grandma Hattie will be 90 in April and is still going strong!

If you were a fashion designer, which fabrics, colors, and styles would you probably use the most?
I would use a lot of soft pinks, creams and grays (with a little black thrown in). My fabrics would be soft cotton knits and soft linens and the styles would be 20x more modest than what is being designed now.

What is your least favorite chore, and why?
MOPPING!!!!!! I just hate it and don't even know why--maybe because it makes my back hurt and dirty, well used mop heads gross me out.

Main Course
What is something that really frightens you, and can you trace it back to an event in your life?
I used to be really afraid my kids would get meningitis and I can trace it back to when I was little and my mom babysat a little boy who contracted it and he almost died. I still remember seeing his picture in the newspaper after he was almost all recovered in an add for Children's Hospital. I don't worry about that so much--but now I worry a lot that my kids are going to get in driving accidents....

Where are you sitting right now? Name 3 things you can see at this moment.
I am at my computer desk in the family room. I can see my monitor, my camera and one of my rag dolls.

More feasts can be found here!

My mum's name is Gladys, she's not too keen on the name, she was named after her grandmother's friend. I guess few of us like the names we've been given.

Heck, if I have MY way, my kids will NEVER be learning to drive. But I doubt I'll get my way. OH DEAR!
